101010 Project: Leanne Wargowsky

Yesterday was the kickoff of the 101010 Project. This idea sparked from artist Robin Norgren after many of us women met through the e-course, Flying Lessons, given by artist Kelly Rae Roberts. The 101010 Project is a blog hop where each one of us were assigned ten thoughtful questions about our creative business. We each answered the ten questions and then starting May 1st, each one of us will post one answer from someone other than ourselves to our assigned question.

Collaborations: a good idea? will be the question that you will see answered on my blog throughout the blog hop. At the end of each post there will be a link that will take you to the 101010 Project blog where you can find all the participants and links to their blogs.

Today we hear from sweet Leanne, a creative businesswoman that discovered her creative roots through blogging.

Name of Business: From Chaos Comes Happiness

Years in Business: Approaching 1
Born, raised, and living in the Chicago land area, this happily chaotic soul is definitely a newbie in the universe of creative businesses. Last August, after 25 years in health care, I was released from days of insurance and hospitals and I started listening to my inner artist. My dream, From Chaos Comes Happiness, was born. I'm not doing it alone, though, as my support system is wide and deep with a husband who encourages me and two beautiful daughters who inspire me. While I have a long way to go in this business of mine, I'm determined to remain true to who I am, and stopping just long enough to smell the roses along the way.
 Collaborations: a good idea?
"If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships - the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace." - Franklin D. Roosevelt. And so my belief goes . . . are collaborations a good idea? Most definitely YES! From music (Lennon& McCartney) to dancing (Astaire& Rogers), ice cream (Ben & Jerry) to computers (Hewlett & Packard), the list of amazingly successful collaborations is long and wide. I am a strong believer of strength in numbers, and any time two creative souls gather . . . I am certain great things will come of it. My most successful creative endeavors have been born out of idea bouncing and feedback that I have received from another. Setting responsibilities and boundaries are so important in the process. But once established, the sky is the limit. Anyone interested in collaborating? Call me! ;)
